New York City has the aura of a living, breathing movie set. And it’s true that countless iconic films have captured the city’s energy and charm. Dozens of locations around NYC have become ingrained in pop culture history. So, for your next trip, ditch the tourist traps and follow in the footsteps of your favorite film characters!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Start your day like Holly Golightly at the iconic Tiffany & Co. on Fifth Avenue. While window-shopping for dazzling jewels might not be everyone’s cup of tea, snapping a photo outside the legendary storefront is a must for any Audrey Hepburn fan.

When Harry Met Sally

Grab a table at Katz’s Delicatessen and recreate the “I’ll have what she’s having” moment. This Jewish deli, established in 1888, is not just a movie landmark but a culinary institution, famous for its mouthwatering pastrami sandwiches.


Feeling spooky? Visit the Spooktacular Bookshop in the Greenwich Village. This bookstore, featured in the original Ghostbusters film, is a haven for horror and sci-fi enthusiasts, where you’ll feel like a real-life paranormal investigator.


Top off your NYC movie tour with a visit to Buddy the Elf’s Department Store in Macy’s Herald Square. And for an extra laugh, have a spin in the revolving doors upon entering.
